Jack Grealish has been told there is no guarantee he will be able to realise his Champions League ambitions if he leaves Aston Villa for Manchester United.

The Red Devils are eyeing a £70million summer deal for Grealish, who helped Villa secure their return to the Premier League last season and has continued to impress this term.

Grealish is said to be interested in joining Manchester United and has reportedly told friends he wants to move to Old Trafford.

But former England defender Joleon Lescott says a move to Manchester United does have its problem, with the club still struggling under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils are currently eighth in the Premier League – six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea – and will likely have to settle for another year in the Europa League unless they win the competition this season.

Lescott told Grand National: ‘When you look at the spectrum of teams, Manchester United are still a big club but in terms of Grealish’s ability, if he leaves Aston Villa he’s going to want to play Champions League and that’s not guaranteed at United, even in the future.

‘I would love to see him test himself in the highest level because I think he’s capable of playing at real heights.

‘He’s proven that he can really perform in a team that’s been struggling this season.

‘In terms of if he was going to move to United, it would obviously be a great move for him because it is Manchester United.

‘But, in terms of how he can test himself against the very best, is he going to be able to do that at United as they’re not guaranteed Champions League football?’

Spanish rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid are also said to be interested in signing Grealish this summer but Tony Cascarino believes the playmaker will be joining United.
